Sega releases official story trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Remastered0 Comments
It’s been nearly a decade since Valkyria Chronicles released for the PlayStation 3. It was one of those PlayStation 3 gems that never got much traction outside of Japan, despite its overwhelming adoration. Well, western fans are in luck, because a remastered version for the PlayStation 4 is reporting for duty on May 17 in North America and Europe. To commemorate the announcement, publisher Sega released the official English story trailer for Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. They took it even further by providing a faux press release as if it were written by the Gallian forces:
By [REDACTED] 1935 E.C.
By order of the crown prince Maximilian, the Autocratic East Europan Imperial Alliance — also known as the Empire — has invaded the Principality of Gallia for its rich ragnite deposits. As a result, our once neutral Gallia is now directly involved in the Second Europan War, and is in a state of total war with The Empire.
The fight will not be easy, as the Empire’s forces are superior in number and quality. Furthermore, they possess many fearsome generals such as the skilled Major Generals Berthold Gregor and Radi Jaeger, and the powerful Valkyrur Brigadier General Selvaria Bles. They have already attacked many cities and towns, and are inching toward our capital city of Randgriz.
Though the situation seems bleak, we can win this war. The Empire has an army filled with soldiers who follow orders, but we have the strength and will of the Gallian Army and Militia who are fighting for their glorious homeland. Just look at the vaunted Squad 7! With the tactical brilliance of 2nd Lieutenant Welkin Gunther, reliability of Sergeant Alicia Melchiott, and dedication from the platoon’s other members, we won’t lose this war!
Valkyria Chronicles was a special tactical JRPG that was known for its gorgeous cel-shaded visuals and immersive gameplay, which blended third person shooting and RPG mechanics. It also told an incredibly immersive story that read like classic novel from WWI. If you missed your chance to play this absolutely phenomenal title, mark your calendar and get ready to sortie this summer!
